MNS Hornbill Conservation Project

I'm here as a volunteer for the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) Hornbill Conservation Project which was held every year in August and September 2011. My group was the last group today.

"Get involved, Get your hands dirty! Experience first-hand, what's it like to be part of a national conservation effort and uncover one of the oldest tropical rainforests in Malaysia..."

And I thought, hey, why not I joined too...must be fun... I have never been to any jungle/forest before...Yes..yes..I joined and on 23 - 27 September 2011..Off I go with my colleague and joined two more volunteers from Kuala Lumpur... Can you believe it if I said, one of the volunteers from KL is my first cousin Dolly, whom I have never talked with and seen for 40years...Oh my god, are you playing tricks on us???

The Resort, we are staying for 5days and 4 nights.

Oh my god again, Im staying here without electricity, no calls, no water, no flush toilet, no soft mattress to sleep on and the worst of all...NO VT!!! Aaaarrrrrgggghhhh...

But its okay to me, as a nice experience. I stayed at Kampung Tebang at Lake Belum-Temengor and having Orang Asli as neighbours...Hmmm..not bad at all.. as long there are people to mingle around..

Orang Asli Children

Aha...The Orang Asli children, they are shy at first.. and they like to have their pictures taken and see their faces in the camera.. So happy, giggle and I am giggling myself too...
